Psycho Sevenpaths

The poster for this movie looked interesting, some big names in there. And it looked to be heading into humourous territory. And, I see, by the same guy that did In Bruges, which takes a while to get going, but is good.

The movie stars like a better version of a Tarantino movie, and then gets better again. It's about a guy who's writing a movie about seven people who are psychopaths, and there also happen to be seven people in this movie who happen to be psychopaths (more or less). While being slightly self-referential, it's also just engaging and absorbing, and while watching this I took moments when I recognised that I was just straight up enjoying it.

Those big names I mentioned: Colin Farrell, Sam Rockwell, Christopher Walken and Woody Harrelson. Yeah, right! (There are also some women in this, but they don't matter. And it doesn't help when the movie points this out about itself, because the women still aren't well written.) There are some great moments with these people, and it helps that the movie isn't taking itself seriously.

Definite thumbs up, check this movie out.
